Elon Musk Leaves President Trump's Advisory Council After Paris Agreement Exit

Elon Musk Leaves President Trump's Advisory Council After Paris Agreement Exit

"It is no surprise in his positioning as the American president in the sense that, for him, climate change is a big joke", said Jean-Eric Branaa, professor of American politics at the University of Paris II. So we need to export clean coal technology, we need to export the technology in natural gas to those around the globe - India and China - and help them learn from us on what we've done to achieve good outcomes.

It commits the USA and 194 other countries to keeping rising global temperatures "well below" 2 degrees C above pre-industrial levels and "endeavour to limit" them even more, to 1.5C.

He said he would notify the UN Secretary General and the climate change secretariat that USA cities, states, businesses and others would aim to meet the US's commitment to reducing emissions 26 per cent below the 2005 levels by 2025. He sent a second tweet debunking one of Trump's claims about the Paris agreement. "It (Paris accord) did not hold nations like China and India accountable", he said. Malloy said that CT is "a national leader in combatting climate change" and has no intention of slowing efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. However, President Trump felt that the Paris accord was "unfair" and this would put the United States to a very big "economic disadvantage".

"We believe that the momentum created in Paris in December 2015 is irreversible and we firmly believe that the Paris agreement can not be renegotiated, since it is a vital instrument for our planet, businesses and economies", said the authorities of France, Germany and Italy.

Rice called Trump's decision the "coup de grâce" for America's status as a global leader, and added that it jeopardized United States alliances by isolating the country from the rest of the developed world.

The Paris Agreement was agreed by the 196 member economies that attended the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties (COP21) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) 2015 in Paris.




"He was elected on a posture, an ideology of 'alone against everyone.' We expected it, we had some important signals with the calling into question of (former U.S. President Barack) Obama's 2015 Clean Power Plan with the relaunch of construction of the pipeline, with the cut in the federal budget for global development aid", she said. The US has reportedly so far paid $1bn (£780m) of a $3bn pledge. "I promised I would exit or renegotiate any deal which fails to serve America's interests".

The Democratic governors of New York, California and Washington states all quickly vowed to respect the terms of the Paris deal.

Tesla Inc CEO Elon Musk and Walt Disney CEO Robert Iger said they would leave White House advisory councils after Trump's move. From 1850 to 2010, India's Carbon dioxide emissions have been one tenth that of the USA and of the European countries.

"And so because of all of these factors, after ISIL's gone, we can expect some other terrorist entity to arise and a cycle of extremism which will continue to control us for the foreseeable future", Clapper said in 2016.

An Associated Press search of his twitter archives revealed at least 90 instances in which he has referred to "global warming" and "climate change" since 2011. They warned that if nothing is done, global temperatures could rise by as much as five degree Celsius by 2100.
